Batson-Cook building $48 million addition to CTCA Southeastern

Batson-Cook Construction of West Point, Ga., is currently building a new $48 million addition to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan.

The hospital, which was constructed by Batson-Cook and completed in 2012, is being upgraded with the addition of 121,000 square feet of new space and 30,000 square feet of remodeled space.

The construction work can be seen from Interstate 85 at the site of the facility on Parkway North, between the interstate and Newnan Crossing Bypass. Steel has been going up in recent weeks.

“After the successful completion of the original hospital, we are pleased to have been asked to return to the campus for this major expansion,“ said Randy Hall, president and CEO of Batson-Cook. “These new additions will add much-needed space for the hospital to further their mission of offering the highest possible level of care for their patients.”

Batson-Cook will renovate CTCA in four phases while the hospital maintains operations within its existing facility.

The project will include construction of two vertical additions: the Inpatient Expansion Project, which will add 25 new patient rooms and a penthouse to the facility, and the Clinic Expansion Project.

The Clinic Expansion Project, an addition of four-stories and a penthouse, will envelop the hospital’s existing clinic and infusion areas, as construction will take place both above and adjacent to the current structure.

A one-story Surgery Expansion is also under way, adding two new operating rooms, post-anesthesia bays and sterile area spaces in its confines. The Radiation Therapy Expansion, to be built adjacent to the current facility, will feature one new vault to house a Varian Edge™ radiosurgery system and additional offices, clinical space and enhancements to the existing central energy plant to accommodate the added space.
